Our Wednesday tracks are a great way to get an in-depth learning experience with some of our excellent speakers. Participants can expect a full day of intensive study, during which they’ll dig deep into their chosen topics.
You will be given the option to choose your Wednesday session when you register. While you may choose on site, pre-selecting allows us to better gauge room setup. Your selections will also be pre-loaded into the conference mobile app making it easier than ever for you to navigate your schedule during the conference.
All Wednesday tracks are held at the Penn Stater Conference Center from 9am-5pm. The registration desk will open at 7am and a light morning snack and beverages will be available beginning at 8am.
Lunch may be purchased from the registration store, from the on-site restaurant, or you may pack a lunch.
Principles of Biological Systems & Implications
Dan Kittredge, Bionutrient Food Association
This track will cover the dynamics by which plants evolved to flourish, and management practices that support the environment for that to occur. Strategies for soil aeration, hydration, mineral balancing, inoculation, and feeding through the liquid carbon pathway will be presented. Presenter Dan Kittredge will also cover broader implications for soil carbon sequestration, increases in pest and disease resistance, along with nutritive value, flavor, aroma, and shelf life. The lay of the land as it pertains to consumer education, marketing, and the food movement will also be discussed.
